I wouldn't worry about the TV picture freezing during the setup. Ignore that and just finish the wizard. Also, since there are problems with the Sling Media servers, have you considered using the Slingplayer Desktop 1.5 to configure your Slingbox?
I've tried connecting using both the desktop version and online (I have a mac). When I log in and see my information it says I have
a slingbox that is set up BUT when I open up the application it says I have an unconfigured box. It's confusing. My modem/router is not listed.
I have the 2wire Gateway 2701H-B. Could that be the issue. I've even gone through the steps of opening up a port through the firewall settings.
I'm so confused. I'm also using the sling link.
